Kinema Japan

This series takes viewers to Japan, with selections that encompass the entire spectrum of Japanese filmmaking, from samurai classics to sci-fi stunners. Like last summer’s<em>Cinema italiano</em>series, it is intended as an introduction and homage to one of the world’s great film traditions. We’ve included works by some of the most revered Japanese directors, including Yasujiro Ozu and Akira Kurosawa, and by contemporary filmmakers, including Takashi Miike and Hirokazu Kore-Eda, as well as other films that represent Japan’s vital film history across several eras and genres.
